“A visionary tour de force … wondrous.” –Variety
An old man makes a living by selling bamboo. One day, he finds a princess in a bamboo stalk. The princess is only the size of a finger. Her name is Kaguya. When Kaguya grows up, 5 men from prestigious families propose to her. Kaguya asks the men to find memorable marriage gifts for her, but the 5 men are unable to find what Kaguya wants. Then, the Emperor of Japan proposes to her. (Japan, 2014, 137m, GKids)
After years researching her film about our increasingly surveillance nation, Laura Poitras began receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by U.S. intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. (U.S., 2014, 118m, DCP, Radius TWC)

Jamie Hamilton's work evokes the many mechanical devices and designs by Leonardo Da Vinci. Creating both intricate sketches and large-scale steel and polycarbonate sculptures, Hamilton showcases the beauty and complexity of machinery and its connection to natural forms. "The architecture of my creations is born from the rhythms and dances of music and the physics of motion and structure. The sculptures are made from elemental forms. Cylinder, sphere, line, and plane in combination become progression of scale, spacings and repetitions. Art brings me to a meditation on issues of life, death, joy, despair, dialogue, and connection. It feeds the flames of my intellectual humanity, compassion, and hope in times of barbaric greed and social injustice." - Hamilton

Alison Keogh (www.alisonkeogh.com) uses natural materials to create unique pieces of sculpture. "This survey of work is a contemporary distillation of the New Mexico landscape into its essential elements, which aims to facilitate a reconnection to the land, thereby providing a new perspective, heightening an awareness of our connection to the earth. My work is a dialogue with the natural world, passing through my body, expressed through breath, mindful awareness, and repetitive gestures. I have always been an avid observer of the natural world, working from a place of focused attention and a visceral connection with clay." - Keogh
Gallery Hours: Thursday - Sunday, 12pm - 5pm
